    Organizing Your Genealogy Records and Genealogical Wills

    Join us as Kim Richardson will be presenting.

    Organizing your files and records may seem overwhelming, but it does not have to be! In this presentation about sorting through all of those files, folders, photos, documents and data that are lying around in boxes and piles, we show you how to do it in a step by step, practical way. By incorporating simple changes in how you file your research, you can re-organize your files without a major overhaul. 

    You've done research and work for years.... but what will happen to it in the future? How can you ensure that your hard work is available for future researchers? How do you store your files? What about your online and electronic family trees and documents? This short presentation will show you exactly how to provide a future for your work. Tips for communicating your wishes along with sample wills are provided
